Piyush dropped a bomb late last night with one of the most unorthodox team compositions ever.
Team 1: Sachin – Bharat – Swappy – Aman – Chirag – Vicky – Romy
Team 2: Bob/Sidd – Piyush – Rachit – Mo – Rahul – The Huss – Rajesh
This diabolically evil teams have so much going on – Team 1 has the dribblers, in form keeper, in form defenders and the lethal strikers in Bharat & Sachin. There is a lack of power here and the worrying form of Swappy to content with. Having Bharat gives them options in goal and attack. Swappy can play anywhere on the pitch and the trick would be to keep him away from Mo!
Team 2 has the power and boy its dynamite! Rahul, Rachit, Mo, The Huss & Piyush on their day can tear the opposition apart. There is a school of thought that their accuracy on the day will decide the game. Also, with Bob/Sidd being in goal creates a sort of haze to the final definition of this team. If Bob plays, Sidd comes in thankfully as a referee and if he does not then Sidd comes in as a goal-keeper. Leaders in this team look like Rajesh, Mo & Piyush but the tactical nous of Rahul & Rachit will also play a key role if they decide to be vocal.
The deliciousness of this team selection is so sinister that at first glance it looks like all the balance is in making a close game but look deeper and all revelations pop! Players who won the first game and divided almost equally! Oh the mind of a vegetarian – salute.
A 90 minute game will bring its own challenges – stamina management and card discipline mainly. The defenders are the ones most expected to be disciplined and a red card could be the difference here. Injuries could occur as this is the first time such a long game has been tried. Play safe and be rewarded for coming away unscathed from a 90 minute game is the ultimate trophy.
Players to watch out for:
- Man of the match Vicky is the one here as his stamina and form will be looked upon in game 2.
- Rahul is due a big game and could explode for a few goals.
- Rajesh for his on-field captaincy.
- Mo for absolutely owning Swap in the finals is back and will be rubbing his hands with glee for a second bite at Swappy.
The cracker will be lit tomorrow so do not be late!
